Jordan warns Jews not to be 'too Jewish'... just like in Europe
Jordan has officially warned Israeli and Jewish tourists not to look 'too Jewish
' while visiting Jordan.
The Jordanian Tourism Ministry on Wednesday warned Jewish and Israeli
tourists not to openly wear religious garb or perform religious rituals
while visiting the country.
Jordanian tourism officials reportedly informed their Israeli
counterparts to advise visitors not to wear “Jewish dress” or perform
“religious rituals in public places” so as to prevent possible attacks.
Earlier this year, six Israeli tourists wearing kippot, or yarmulkes,
were assaulted in a marketplace in southern Jordan, after their
traditional Jewish garb “provoked the sensibilities of the vendors,”
independent daily Al-Arab Al-Yawm reported.
Just like Europe....
Meanwhile, Israeli and Jewish officials in Denmark on Wednesday similarly warned Jews to avoid openly wearing religious symbols and dress while in Copenhagen amid rising anti-Israeli sentiments.
"We advise Israelis who come to Denmark and want to go to the
synagogue to wait to don their skull caps until they enter the building
and not to wear them in the street, irrespective of whether the areas
they are visiting are seen as being safe," Israel's ambassador to
Denmark, Arthur Avnon, told AFP.
Avnon added that visitors were also advised not to "speak Hebrew loudly" or demonstrably wear Star of David jewelry.
It's not paranoia when they really are out to get you.
